Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage - Industrial Corridor
The Industrial Corridor is a 3.5 mile trail between the Riverfront Corridor and the Middle Levee Corridor. The Industrial Corridor is located on the Pigeon Creek Levee starting at Fulton Avenue and Riverside Drive, along Fulton Avenue to John Street and then west to the Mead Johnson Trailhead. The trail then follows the levee along Pigeon Creet to the Uhlhorn Trailhead. Below are pictures of the six phases of the Industrial Corridor. Phase 4, Louisiana Street to Dresden Avenue was completed in 2012. Now the Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage spans 6.75 miles from Sunrise Park to the Heidelbach Canoe Launch.

Marchand Bridge Overlook is located at the mouth of Pigeon Creek on the Ohio River. This 1891 Pratt Truss Bridge was dedicated on October 21, 2009 into an overlook for the Greenway Passage. The former Ohio Street Bridge or the old "Singing Bridge" was funded from Riverboat funds and from a Transportation Enhancement Grant from INDOT. The bridge is linked with the Industrial Corridor across Ohio Street.
